interfilm has established itself as one of the most important short film festivals in Europe. It is the second oldest German short film festival (after Oberhausen), and is recognised as the second most significant and oldest international film festival in Berlin after the Berlinale. More than 5.000 films with a maximum running time of 30 minutes are submitted each year. Of those, approximately 400 films are selected and organised into different thematic programs. These include; international, German, animation, documentary and children’s films. 'Focus On' highlights productions from specific countries or regions. Beyond that there are also special sections devoted to areas such as music videos, commercials, experimental films, historical films and retrospectives.
The coming interfilm festival taking place from 12 - 17 November will present more than 500 films during six festival days in seven competitions and numerous special programmes. International juries will confer ‘interfilm Short Awards’ valued at a total of EUR 30.000 (US $ 40,000).
